I have been recommended by a friend to this forum as i am gettin more and more frustrated with my progress...or lack of it.
Last September i weighed 18 stone 5 lbs I am now down to low 15 stone. Although i am happy with the progress i have made i still have the same body fat reading as i did when i was at 18 stone approx 24%.
I wish to get down to around 15% as my next target with a weight of approximately 13 stone 7lbs.
My current diet is:
Breakfast: 3 Weetabix and Protein Shake
11am: Protein Shake
13:30: 130 g of Chicken
16:00 Protein Shake
19:00 Post workout shake
20:00 Chicken/ Fish/ Steak with Veg
This is mainly how i have lost the weight so far by keeping my carbs as low as possible. I have been getting more and more frustrated over the past few weeks and diet has gone out of the window a little but i need to get back on track.
My training consists of 5 weight sessions a week focusing on a body part each day...e.g chest back etc
Cardio goes either one of two ways with me I can either go hell for leather and train twice a day and get absolutely knackered or I won't bother at all.
My main questions are
How much cardio do i need to do to start reducing my bodyfat so that I am not overtraining?
What alterations should I make to my diet?
Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can give me!
